We have reviewed Henry of Pelham before and were pleasantly surprised with the result. With this in mind we picked up a bottle of their Rose to go with a light dinner we were cooking. While we generally prefer red wines, once the sun starts showing it’s smiling face more often in the summer our tastes change a bit and lean towards the whites and roses.

There is very little information on what grapes are used in this wine but we assume it is a winemaker’s blend. They do say that it is cool fermented to enhance the fruity flavours.

We paired this with a light salad and salmon dinner and I must say it worked perfectly with it.

You can purchase a bottle at the LCBO for $13.95 and it sits at 11.5% ABV.

Appearance: light red with pink. Good legs.
Aroma: Strawberry hints. Much dryer than expected with some depth. I pick up notes of cranberry.
Taste: Much sweeter in taste. Still that strawberry. Very refreshing and light.
Aftertaste: Very dry and long finish.
Overall: A refreshing rose for the patio. Pair with salmon.
